Watch these five Star Trek fan-made Christmas songs
It’s that time of the year. Christmas songs on the radio, carollers at your door (does anyone actually still do that?), Christmas specials on your television and Star Trek fans creating the best mash-up songs on YouTube.
You didn’t know? Apparently, you can make any song out of the dialogue used in various Star Trek shows and a few YouTubers have done just that, but with your favorite Christmas classics. We found five of the very best that YouTube has to offer and we’re bringing them to you.
Now keep in mind, these are dialogue-based songs, so if you’re looking for actual singing, that isn’t going to be the case here. Not even with auto-tune. So enjoy these for the hilarity they bring but if you were hoping to sing along or maybe dance to these holiday favorites, you might want to find non-Star Trek versions.
Jean Luc Picard and Q sing “All I want for Christmas…” to each other.
Original: “All I want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey
In space, you can’t escape Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas”. Thankfully this time, you don’t have to, as this version stars Jean-Luc Picard ad Q in a bit of a duet. The two characters that helped make The Next Generation and Picard such memorable shows have united to “sing” this Christmas classic.
The original song may be flooded onto the radio every November to such a degree that it’ll haunt your dreams but this version of the song should hopefully be more of a pallet cleanser. After all, you don’t have to deal with any of Carey’s vocals for this version, just Q, mockingly, singing to Picard.
